Windows 7: Setting smaller system font when win 7 tools don't go small enough

Setting smaller system font when win 7 tools don't go small enough

Can anyone tell how or if its possible to change the system font to a smaller size than is available at:
Control panel / Appearance and Personalization / display

I got a big new monitor where Windows 7 windows now display with a larger font than I need for visibility.

I've set the radio button for small and even under Custom DPI setting
It will not let me set anything under 100%...

It now shows: 9 point Segoe UI at 96 pixels per inch

I'd probably like 8 point or even 7 point.

So, is there anyway to make the fonts smaller beyond those settings

Welcome to SF!

Click on an empty space on the desktop
Hold the CTRL key while spinning your Mouse Wheel (presuming you have one, of course)
All your Desktop Icons and Text will grow/shrink accordingly- and it will stick between sessions
